Homily (Reflection) for Weekdays of Advent: 24th December, 2015 on the Gospel
(Mass in the Morning)
2Sam 7:1-5.8-12.14.16;Ps 88:2-5. 27.29. (R. cf. v. 2)
Topic: Promise fulfilled.
Prophet Isaiah prophesied about the child to born tonight: “... to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government will be upon his shoulder, and his name will be called ‘Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace’” (Is 9:6). God has looked favourably on us and redeemed us by giving us a mighty saviour, cf. Lk 1:68-69a.
As we welcome our Saviour Jesus Christ, it is important to open our lives to Him. He is coming into this world to save me and you. How we welcome Him is very important.
Just as Zechariah blessed God in this prophesy, I pray that you will always have course to praise God all the days of your life. But remember to always wait on God and it shall come to pass that all who call upon the name of the LORD shall be delivered, cf. Joel 2:32.
Bible Reading: Is 9:1-7.
Thought for today: It/they shall come to pass.
Let us pray: Lord, give us strong faith to always wait on you till you fulfil all you promised us – Amen.
